|Pakistani Players joyed as Saeed Ajmal Bowled Last Sri Lankan Batsman|
DUBAI: Pakistan beats SriLanka by 9 wickets in second Test. Off-spinner Saeed Ajmal took five wickets leading the three match series 1-0.
Saeed Ajmal 34-year-old finished with 5-68 — his fourth five wicket haul in a Test — to help restrict Sri Lanka to 257 in their second innings before Pakistan went about reaching their modest 94-run target to seal victory with a day to spare.
Ajmal was ably supported by left-arm spin partner Abdul Rehman (2-65) and paceman Junaid Khan (2-38) as they exploited the spin and low bounce on a weary pitch to the best effect.
Pakistan lost opener Taufeeq Umar, bowled for one by spinner Rangana Herath, but Mohammad Hafeez (59) and Azhar Ali (29) scored the required runs inside 24.1 overs soon after the lights went on in the stadium.
